Prepare to be blown away by how absolutely scrumptious these “Bounty” chocolate coconut sandwich cookies are. Crumbly decadent chocolate cookies meet flavour-charged coconut filling in this gluten, dairy and refined sugar free treat, which features coconut in three different forms!
I don’t like recipes. Which is ironic, considering that I have a food blog, and that at the end of this post, you’ll find a recipe (for super duper delicious “Bounty” sandwich cookies… just so you know) that I’ve written. But it’s true, nonetheless. It’s almost like very time I’m reading (and considering following) a recipe, there’s this voice at the back of my head muttering: “Just who do you think you are, telling me what to do. Bah, noooo thank you.” It doesn’t help that almost every time I have followed a recipe, something went spectacularly wrong.
Perfectly crumbly, incredibly easy and quick to make, and almost dangerously delicious, these chocolate pecan dairy and gluten free oatmeal cookies hit the spot just right. They have it all – the taste, the textures, the smell… and you will want to make them again and again. And again.
Where do you find your inspiration? I find it in ridiculously random situations, like sneaky snack attacks, where you’re not actually hungry for food, but for taste, and textures, and smells. And so you walk around your kitchen, and take a bite of this and that, and you realise that anchovies go amazingly well with walnuts, and you decide that the combination of chocolate and pecans is heavenly, only to be further improved with a pinch of oats. Of course, you are incredibly proud of yourself for discovering such groundbreaking flavour combinations – never mind that they have been around for eons.
